MuleSoft is shipping an update to its Tcat Server, an enterprise-class web application server based on Apache Tomcat.  New features include automated configuration management and remote restart.


Less than three months after its debut, MuleSoft’s Tcat Server has new features.  Driven by what MuleSoft officials called extraordinary uptake”,  Tcat Server now sports automated configuration management and remote restart. 


“We built new capabilities into Tcat Server in response to feedback from thousands who have downloaded and are currently using the product,” said Sateesh Narahari, MuleSoft’s director of product management in a statement. “All of Tcat Server’s features are designed to minimize manual tasks,” to drive cost and time savings for Tomcat devs and managers.

 

New Features in MuleSoft Tcat Server 6 R2

 

 Feature   Benefit
Configuration management capabilities Allow users to access the server remotely
Remote Tomcat server restart capabilities Lets users make changes without manually restart
Programmatic deployment and configuration of Tomcat servers via a REST API Lets users extend Tcat Server’s capabilities to better integrate with their existing applications

 

Based 100% on the Apache Tomcat binary, with zero changes to the core code, Tcat Server lets IT teams migrate from these legacy platforms to the lightweight and open source Tomcat, the company said.

 

Among commercial appserver users, a recent ComputerWorld survey found growing interest in open source options, with 36% users of Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere will probably switch to a new production platform within two years, in part, because of high costs and management difficulties.


Tcat Server 6 R2 is immediately available, and is free to use in development and pre-production environments. Production subscriptions and support for Apache Tomcat starts at $595 per CPU per year.
